Summer Writing

Another one of my hobbies, is writing. This summer, I signed up for a writing workshop. This will enable me to develop my craft, meet new people, and get out of the house, without children, for 3 hours a week.

Summer Writing Workshop: Writing Your Identity with MAM. Each and every one of us possess complex identities, which include such elements as race, age, ethnicity, gender, orientation, religion, class, national, political orientation and much more. In this summer workshop, you'll be encouraged to write your identities through the lens of fiction and/or creative nonfiction. (All prose genres are welcome.) Participants will submit and critique short narratives (or excerpts from novels or novellas), in addition to doing weekly writing exercises. We'll aim to create powerful stories with rich and compelling characters, while also exploring the basic elements of fiction/non-fiction writing: plot, dialogue, point of view, setting, structure, and more.
